    The Next Quilt

    I wanted to make a quilt with some material I had on hand and I had the pattern but I needed more material. So I go to the quilt store and I buy several different pieces material. The woman at the quilt store helped me pick out the material and I only bought small amounts - 1/4 yard. Now this quilt is mind boggling because it is overwhelming to think about and I am not sure I like it but I am going to forge onward and make it with what I have. I have a start.

    Oh that will be neat when finished. Do you mind sharing the name of the pattern?

    I love the blocks but personally don't care for the striped fabric, but that's just me.

    I like the blocks so far. Keep going. I agree with pocoellie. The striped border I don't like. To dark for the blocks, needs something lighter to get the blocks to pop. Just my opinion.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.

    Oh I love what you have so far, including the dark stripe in the background. IMHO that dark stripe recedes into the background drawing the viewers attention to those fabulous blocks. What a great way to use Asian prints.

    Thank you very much for posting your top in process! Love that dark stripe in the background!! You gave me an a-ha moment when I saw your top. Been wanting to make a top where the circles look like they are layer. You have inspired me!

    I totally agree with feline fanatic and bobbielinks. The stripe fabric is great in the background for the reasons stated above. See how everyone has different opinions. Go with what you like.

    Keep going. I have love/hate relationship with all my quilts, too. I think it's going to be really special when finished.

    I think all the fabrics you have in the pic go together beautifully. Just put it together it will be beautiful.

    I think you are off to a great start. I like the striped fabric as background to the circles... gives it a very "artful" look. This pattern looks like a variation of the "Bullseye" pattern. Forge on ... I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the finished product.

    I agree with Quiltah Mama...the individual blocks are wonderful...it's the background fabric that pulls it down and makes it muddy looking.

    I'm with you Quiltah Mama but that is one of the fabrics I had in my stash to use up and I am on a mission to deplete and use some of my large pieces of material. This will have two more 2 inch borders around with material that goes with that piece more. We will see. That is part of what is fun - to see how it all turns out. I am hoping for the best. The name of the pattern is "Lost in the Garden". It is from a book by Pamela Mostek called Scatter Garden Quilts. Thanks everyone for your comments.

    This reminds me of the technique made popular by Louisa Smith. It's called Strips'n'Curves. It is fun and addicting
